    You sure that's in high gain? 12-1 oclock is plenty loud for those Senns. I get normal volume until 3 oclock on low gain. On low gain that chassis and volume knob get scorching hot. Something ain't right. It sounds dumb but make sure your power cable is plugged all the way in on the back of the amp. I had similar power problems because the cable was loose from the socket.

    Just got the Valhalla 2 to pair with my senhiser 6xx, I was ready to give up on the cans. Love it the Raytheon 2C51 tubes that came with it. I was really missing out on so much till I got an OTL, It makes sense to me now the love for the little glowing dudes. Got more of the low end that I love. Honestly It may be the first time I was able to hear how deep sounds could be in music.

    I never really got why there’s so much love for the 6XX until I tried mine with a tube amp. Mine isn’t an OTL but it still somehow turns a $200 headphone into something magical. Not every headphone wakes up the way 6xxs do, so don’t expect the same improvement with everything.
